Four albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After three weeks in the top 10, M. Pokora moves down three at number eleven with R.E.D. (6,100 sales / -27%). Ed Sheeran‘s x slips two places at twelve in its 37th week on the chart. Texas 25 falls four at number 13 for Texas in its third week inside the top 250. Last week’s new entry at five, Return To Forever is down to number 19 for Scorpions (4,000 sales / -63%).
